If your child goes to a Flemish day nursery or school in Brussels, you may be entitled to a participatory increase from the Groeipakket, the Flemish child benefits system.

Your child goes to a Flemish day nursery in Brussels.

You may be entitled to a child care increase, which is a partial financial compensation in the costs of child care.

The increase is €3,50 per full child care day per child.

You are entitled to it if the following conditions are met:

  • The child care is recognized by Kind & Gezin.
  • The rate does not depend on the parents’ income.
  • The child is not yet enrolled in nursery class.
